News : Deströyer 666 release new single and EP details

By on January 8, 2018

Originating in Melbourne, Australia and formed by K. K. Warslut in the early 90’s, and then permanently relocating to Europe in the early 2000’s. Deströyer 666 have been at the forefront of the blackened thrash metal scene for over 20 years, releasing five studio albums (the most recent being Wildfire in 2016) and touring extensively across Australia, Europe, and America.

The band is now back with a new EP titled Call of the Wild, which is set for release on 23rd February through Season of Mist. The band is currently streaming the self-titled single from the EP via Youtube.

For more information, head to the band’s official website and Facebook page.

DESTRÖYER 666 continue to do what they are best at: kicking ass and hammering out heavy metal that is slamming straight into the face. No compromise, no sell out, no bullshit!

The Australians fill the gap between albums with the hard-hitting EP, ‘Call of the Wild’ that comes with a distinct taste of an unrepentantly classic flavour.

DESTRÖYER 666 don’t do whiny nostalgia but simply stick to their old school roots, which are reaching straight down into the golden age of metal while allowing themselves to sound fresh and remain relevant.

The band originally started out as a solo project of BESTIAL WARLUST guitarist KK in Australia in 1994. As early as with debut album ‘Unchain the Wolves’ (1997),   fast-tracked towards international acclaim. The even stronger second full-length, ‘Phoenix Rising’ (2000) had the Australians relocating to Europe to be able to satisfy the soaring demand for touring and festival shows. After a round of line-up changes, third full length ‘Cold Steel… For an Iron Age’ (2002) cemented the band’s excellent reputation. After a hiatus caused among other issues by disenchantment with the business, DESTRÖYER 666 returned with ‘Defiance’ in 2009 and followed up on this success with the rough and gritty ‘Wildfire’ seven years later that saw them touring and performing at all the relevant metal festivals worldwide on a regular basis again.

‘Call of the Wild’ comes with three fresh tracks and the revisited classic, “Trialed by Fire”, which was first published on ‘Terror Abraxas’ (2003). Now come and get yours!
